Biscuit maker competes for Bojangles’ crown

The ingredients that go into Mary Stanley’s biscuit baking also might touch on some intangibles.

Stanley will join eight other finalists on Thursday in Charlotte, N.C., for the 18th annual Bojangles’ Franchise Master Biscuit Maker Challenge. The winner will emerge from Bojangles’ test kitchen as its 2014 Master Biscuit Maker among the chain’s franchises.

Stanley began making the daily commute from Tabor City, N.C., a little more than a year ago to begin firing up biscuits made from scratch before sunrise at Bojangles’ at 589 International Drive in Carolina Forest, just northwest of Myrtle Beach.
